Student Life



You are going to make amazing friends at Messiah College, and in between studying, working, practicing and performing, you and your friends are going to have unforgettable experiences together.

Meet with friends

Across campus you’ll find plenty of places to gather with friends. Whether studying in the sun-drenched lounges of Boyer Hall, laughing over a cup of coffee at Café Diem, lounging along the banks of the Yellow Breeches or sharing a late-night pizza in the student union, you will find that Messiah has a variety of fun on-campus hangouts.

Campus activities

Some of the most popular activities on campus include rec sports, coffeehouses which feature talented student performers, soccer games, sledding on a nearby hill, B-Sides concerts and $1 weekend films in our on-campus theater.

We don’t think you’ll get bored here. No matter what you’re into—flag football, disc golf, politics, theatre, student media, dance, canoeing—we’re confident you will find opportunities and people that match your interests.

Nine out of 10 students and parents say they would choose Messiah College again.
